. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap. of the debate was moderated by mitt romney. oh wait, we mean jim lehrer who i think it is safe to say did worse than expected. the president did not perform up to his usual standards and mitt romney came out swinging taking a very offensive approach against the president as well as jim lehrer, big barned the entire pbs crew. the debate focus around the economy as we knew it would and the candidates traded jabs over tax policies for the middle class. >> romney: under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried. they've been crushed. i will not under any circumstances, raise taxes on middle income families. >> obama: now, five weeks before the election, he's saying his big, b

closing two minutes mr. president. >> obama: jim i want to thank you, and i want to thank governor romney because i think this was a terrific debate and i want to thank the university of denver. four years ago we were going through a major crisis and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished and the reason is because of its people. because of the woman i net in north carolina who decided at 5 to go back to school because she wanted to inspire her daughter, and now has a job because of the training she has gotten. because of the company in minnesota who was willing to give up salaries and perks for their employees. the auto workers in detroit take pride in building the best car in the world because it gives them that sense of pride that they are helping to build america. so how do we build on those strengths, and everybody i'm proposing for the next four years, in terms of developing american energy or closing loopholes for companies shipping jobs overseas and focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states all of those things are designed to m

will be a competitive campaign -- if romney had as good of night in denver, and this doesn't move the polls by more than a point, then you have to almost just conclude it is just not in the cards for him this year. but obama still has electoral college problems he is going to give to romney. in ohio he is up by five on average in the polls that would give him enough votes to win the election. >> jamal: one more quick question, are you following the senate races at all? >> yes, people talk about obama's convention bounce, but in senate races there has been a bigger shift towards democrats, where we have about an 80% chance of keeping the senate. individual race especially in swing states in ohio florida, michigan, democratic candidates moved way ahead also in wisconsin and virginia so it seems like obama will have enough coat tails to have democrats keep the senate. at this point it is almost as likely that democrats would hold or maintain the number of seats and actually a net of three and lose the senate. >> thank you. that was nate silver from the "new york times" blog. the book is

gore had a you unique opinion on what what might have gone wrong here. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust-- >> cenk: was that attack--there are a million things that went wrong. that's not why president obama lost over all but was that a mistake to go that late into denver. >> people do get altitude sickness, even sometimes at a mile high, but i think it was reflective of a bigger problem. president obama was being the president. he doesn't have to spend an entire day or day in denver. 's the president. if you watched him last night that's what he behaved like. a guy who for four years has gone unchallenged at least in the same room with anyone. his demeanor, his answers from exactly what you saw during presidential press conference over the last few years. that's the way he responded to romney, to whom he barely acknowledged. he was acting like this was just you know, something that he didn't have to deign to do. that was a hug

from the president on the stump in denver today. >> obama: when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [ laughter ] but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to pay for the wealthy. he didn't know anything about that. >> jennifer: all right. so i love this, of course. and it looks like -- you know, the president's running against a guy who changes his position as much as nicki minaj changes the color of her hair. i'm assuming we're going to see ads that pull apart the lies from the debate last night that were in fact, flips from where he had been before. >> that's absolutely right. in fact, we released one earlier today that will make sure to get to you. we talked about the fact he was playing hide and go seek with his tax plan last night. there were another few moments in which he committed to policies that would devastate the middle class. he made clear that he wasn't going to take action against tax breaks for companies that

-long conversation about the choice ahead for america. romney used a rally in denver to try out his foreign policy attacks. he also attacked president obama on the mandatory spending cuts that will kick into place at the beginning of the year if congress cannot come to some sort of agreement that will stop us from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. senate leaders are planning to use the post election session to hammer out some sort of deal to avoid the automatic tax increases. right now a bipartisan group is coming together to work on what would be a three-step process of reducing the deficit by $2 trillion. and in pennsylvania a judge has ruled against the state's voter id law for the time being. voters will not be stopped from casting a ballot. the judge said there is not enough time with five weeks to go for the number of people who need photo id and those who have already gotten it. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us. election but they cannot steal democracy. what the current audience can expect from my show is the unexpected. >>stephanie miller challen

"new york times" polls blogger nate silver rated the president's chances of winning re-election at around 86% compared to 14% for mitt romney. the president got a boost today when a pennsylvania judge delayed implementing the state's voter i.d. law until after the november election.

about psyching yourself up before a debate. president obama -- he did get into denver just two hours before the debate. do you think that based on his performance, it was somehow a miscalculation to sort of rush it? >> yeah. absolutely. you know, all the way back to 1960 in the first kennedy/nixon debate, the day of the debate, nixon's people put him out. he was doing events, he had speeches he gave the day of the debate which is nuts in retrospect. but i think even something as simple as a travel day why not do that the day before. it just seems like you don't want to take any risk that will throw your candidate off. you want them rested. you want them ready to go and i really don't -- i would like to hear somebody explain why they decided to fly him in that afternoon. >> jennifer: obviously they had a strategy in the debate about him being less combative. that he was going to be more presidential. that had to have been why he didn't punch back at every opportunity. i'm curious about the format going forward. the next debate is going to be a town hall style and after all of the revi
